These are simple looking cookies, not that attractive but I love the orange aroma and fragrance together with the plain white chocolate chips. The citrus aroma is not affected at all with white chocolate chips and you get to wonder what the white spots are. You may think they are almond nibs or some nuts, too.
Since I am not a fan of sweet cookies, I have cut down on the sugar and I find this amount not too sweet. The original recipe uses 150 grams caster sugar.
These cookies have the lovely aroma of orange, crispy, buttery and not too sweet . Lovely cookies as a snack.
